Under Secretary of Agriculture for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs Ted McKinney visited the Southeast Regional Fruit and Vegetable Conference on Friday and talked trade issues with members of the GA Fruit & Vegetable Association before touring the trade show.

With the China Phase One trade deal slated to be signed next week, and USMCA getting one step closer to the Senate floor this week, McKinney had a lot to discuss in this interview from the conference. He also addresses skepticism about whether China will actually buy $40 billion in U.S. farm products this year, and concerns fruit and vegetable growers have about USMCA.
